    Got my lid painted as well, I don't want any carbon fiber on the car as well, and as you can kinda see in the initial post the lid was CF. So I painted it gloss black, enjoy!

    PS: the guy doing my polishing and powdercoating is taking forever, but I will update when I get my stuff back, if ever

    Woo Hoo! Polished parts!

    Alright everyone, the bulk of the parts has come back from the polisher/ powder coater. Got the valve covers, coolant pipe, belt tensioner, power steering pulley (turn one), fuel rail, and strut tower brace polished. Then the brackets and stuff along with bumper support powder coated black. Check it out, he does good work!

    He does a Ls1 package for all the stuff shown plus small misc. pieces for 450 polished and 350 powder coated (if you wanted everything powder coated). Also does wheels and whatever else you may want done -- something like 65 per wheel

    If you ever want anything done, just contact me and we can set something up.

    Umm, I dont know who your talking about so I guess not but I would like to know!

    EDIT: I did some research, and no I had no idea of them. But, I got most of my stuff polished as you can tell and then I painted my intake rather than PC, although their PC looks really good, I may look into giving it to them for PC depending on price

    Its pretty simple.... well unless the bumper gets in the way (I had mine off already) but I dont think it does. Just unbolt the bumper support and any pins that hold plastic pieces in place, and the reservior is just held on by a couple of push pins.
